Intro to Photoshop – Basic Tools and Adjustments

This entry level course will cover many of the basics of Photoshop, including where to find many of the key tools, what they do, and how and why to use them. Due to the intensive nature of Photoshop, we recommend bringing a laptop, but you can just follow along in class.

In this course, we will be working with and explaining the following:

  • Adobe Camera RAW
  • The Toolbar Functions
  • Palettes
  • Basic Color and Contrast Edits
  • Basic Filter Tools
  • Cropping, Transforming
  • Creating layers in your image
  • An introduction to adjustment layers
  • An introduction to masks
  • Round trip from/to Lightroom

This course is the first class to take when getting started with Photoshop. There is no prerequisite, but computer knowledge is helpful.

This class will be taught using Adobe’s Creative Cloud. Versions CS5, CS6 and CC are recommended for use with this class. Please be advised that Adobe Photoshop Elements has a very different layout and will not translate well for instructional purposes.

If you like, bring your camera, computer, and a snack.

Class size limited to 12
